Jane Furlong Investigation

Jane Furlong Investigation


Police investigating the death of Jane Furlong are seeking information about a distinctive tasselled leather jacket that Jane owned around the time of her disappearance in May 1993.

"Jane purchased the jacket from a shop in Onehunga shortly before her disappearance and it was an item of clothing that she was commonly seen in." says Detective Inspector Mark Benefield.

"The jacket is a patchwork of leather panels, each panel has varying shades of brown or tan. There are tassels on each arm and the jacket may have had tassels on the back" he says.

"The leather jacket was reasonably distinctive. It wasn't with Jane when her body was discovered last year at Port Waikato."

"In 1993 these were popular items that were passed around and traded, and we appeal to anyone who may know where this jacket is, or has information about what happened to the jacket, to come forward and speak with the inquiry team." Anyone with information can contact Operation Darlia
team on 0800 675 263 or at furlong@police.govt.nz
